BoardDocs Rolls Out Strategic Goal Tracking to Pro Subscribers

Now, BoardDocs Pro Users Can Maximize the Effectiveness of Strategic Plans by Tracking Goal Progress Online

ATLANTA (July 5, 2011) — BoardDocs has released the much-anticipated Goal Tracking functionality, providing BoardDocs Pro subscribers with the ability to easily track strategic goals online and share that progress with constituents.

Highly functional boards agree that the successful crafting and implementing of strategic plans is essential to effective governance. BoardDocs has supported the development and online publication of goals associated with strategic plans since 2009. Now, subscribers can use the new Goal Tracking feature to assign and link meeting agenda items to specific goals. A simple review of the goal reflects all associated actions, discussions and supporting documentation. Special reports may then be generated to analyze the organization’s strategic plan fulfillment.

“We began using goals in 2009 as part of our District Accountability System, which is used as a tool to measure both the Board's and Superintendent's performance and the progress of our school system,” said Debra Andrews, Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools' Board Secretary. “The new Goal Tracking tool will make everything faster. We can now just click on a goal and see all related actions and discussions associated with that goal. It's just another great way for us to become even more efficient and effective.”

This latest release is one in a series of new enhancements that provides unprecedented access to board documents and actions. The Company recently released Social Sharing, which allows users to easily share any public item in BoardDocs via Facebook, Twitter or eMail. BoardDocs also extended the popular XML capabilities to the entry-level BoardDocs LT solution, enabling all subscribers to dynamically drive BoardDocs data into their Web site. These system upgrades demonstrate BoardDocs’ ongoing commitment to help boards improve their effectiveness and increase transparency. BoardDocs’ cloud-based services provide subscriber interaction and customization that’s radically superior to the competition with features that deliver an overall richer user experience, while saving organizations time and money.
